1973 Airstream-Argosy 24' Travel Trailer
we looked at this yesterday--it's in Downingtown. We wanted something we could clean up and do a little work on and sell--this will probably need a few thou spent on it--but if you are looking for an Arg for yourself it is worth checking out.
My husband used to sell Airstreams so he looked it over--although it was very muddy and there were brambles all around so he didn't really get under it--since we had decided not to buy it.
in pretty good shape outside--the end caps aren't rusty, the paint on the aluminum is worn down, some small dents around the bottom. The windows look good--one screen was loose.
The guy said it had new tires and brakes recently--this is iffy--the biggest reason we didn't buy it--the tires didn't look bad, but it obviously hasn't been moved for a long time--if the brakes seize that's a big job right away--there's two axles.
There's also a tear underneath at the front streetside--don't know how far it goes. Someone was living in it at the antiques shop where it is located--we were concerned that the pipes may have frozen--another biggy.
The inside is surprisingly good--shag carpet is disgusting, the whole thing is pretty filthy, but the two gauchos look very good--just dusty--a good cleaning and they'll be fine. The curtains look rotten. The walls and ceiling are dirty and moldy. The cabinets are in good shape--except the four drawers under the gaucho in the front are missing, and the laminant is coming loose on the table. Can't tell if the appliances are working. The guy selling it said it had electric run to it--but we don't know anything about the systems.
If you are interested, pm me and I'll give you the guy's cell # so you can get in touch with him--thay don't answer emails very quickly. I know about 20 people were supposed to be coming to look at it, but I'd be surprised if it's sold--it's pretty discouraging unless you know your Airstreams-- it will take mucho work.
